    I recently picked up a used 2002 TRD ext cab 4x4. Just curious if it is supposed to have a front skid plate? It has holes that look like it is where one should mount?

    You didn't lose much, since the factory skids are little more than cosmetic. Now, you have an excuse to buy a good one... ;)

    I was thinking about making my own actually. I have a large piece of 3/8" aluminum (4x8'). Figure at 3/8 it would be plenty tough but be much lighter then a steel version.

    Anyone have plans for a skid plate? Dimensions and such?
